El Caballo

The Andalusian horse has a long and distinguished history as a riding horse of excellence. The first Spanish horses arrived in Australia in 1972 and were brought to the El Caballo Blanco complex at Wooroloo, Western Australia, by the late Mr Ray Williams. He imported the well known stallion Bodeguero and a number of mares, as the foundation of the 'Bodeguero Stud'. Many of the present day Andalusian (Spanish) horses in Australia trace back to Bodeguero and those first mares. El Caballo Resort was established in 1974 and the Dancing Horses were enjoyed by all who saw them. After many years absence, the Spanish Dancing Stallions have now returned to entertain with their amazing movements. Here are some scenes from the show which was performed under difficult conditions in rain and mud.
